An Author Interview with Kristin Hannah in Talk about LibraryThing (Febbraio 5)
deaf woman, dies too early, given choice of new body in Name that Book (Settembre 2015)


Even though this book is listed as historical fiction, this actually a very slow moving and repetitive family drama set during a historical period. I cannot say I learned much new information about the Great Depression or the Dust Bowl through this story. Although I realize Hannah is a popular author, this book just didn't work for me.

Overall rating: 2.5 stars

Disappointing for three reasons -
1. The time frame was too long and the pacing kept speeding up and slowing down. It felt like the author had a checklist of things that happened to the French during WW2 and went through and carefully added every possible event to these two sisters lives. It was not necessary for the characters to face every. single. calamity.

2. The relationships were heavily focused on but the historical details hardly at all. Isabelle is dashing hither and yon in near impossible escape plots and so the reader doesn't question the veracity of what she is doing we are just told but never shown how she pulls it off.

3. Gäetan. What a slime ball, it took me till 50% through before I was horrified to realise that I was supposed to be rooting for him. He was like the personification of a Red Flag, yeuckkk

Almost 5 stars, but I've read enough of her books to be able to predict what the characters will do, but still a real pageturner! She manages to capture the period and setting during this beautiful yet horrific scene in Vietnam during the war along with the unappreciated contirbutions of the young men & women over there. The story of women & nurses before, during, and after. took so appallingly long to come out and she tells it so darn well! Read it!

This was a good book...but for me not great...Too long and repetitive and over the board drama...
